Big Star's "Third" performance at the Alex Theatre on April 27, 2016 in Glendale, Calif. Album tribute concerts can often feel like a cash-grabbing marketing ploy designed to allow an artist to revisit a best-selling set in concert to ratchet up ticket sales. Wednesday night's all-star concert at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, Calf. billed as "Thank You, Friends: Big Star's Third and More" and following the 2010 death of frontman Alex Chilton, was nothing like that. Other standouts included Stringfelllow's expressive vocal on "Stroke It, Noel" and eccentric Hitchcock's reading of "Downs," which featured Mills bouncing a basketball and Kaplan singing through a rolled-up magazine for added effect. The "Third" portion wrapped with a rousing version of "Thank You, Friends," with various singers taking turns on lead vocals.

Written-By – Alex Chilton. This version can be distinguished from Big Star - The Third Album by an additional notation in the deadwax. This version is mastered by Denis Blackham (. BilBo"), as shown by the following deadwax notations: Side A "A BILBO BOPPA!" and Side B "BILBO" (see photos of deadwax). Different cover, track selection and sequence than US version. Matrix, Runout (Side A runout etched): AUL·703·A·1 A BILBO BOPPA!

Big Star dared to be poppishly offbeat when both pop music and nonconformity were being beaten back by the industry-driven push toward corporate rock and laid-back singer-songwriters. Making matters more difficult, Big Star hailed from Memphis, a city with a long-standing rhythm & blues tradition but hardly a Liverpool when it came to pop bands. Consigned to the obscurity of cutout bins, Big Star’s records circulated by word of mouth throughout a prescient underground of cult fens, rock critics and fledgling musicians, serving as a semiotic blueprint for the power-pop renaissance of the late Seventies and beyond. Next is Big Star Live, an energized hour-long concert performed in a studio for a live radio broadcast in 1974.
